Event description

Description

BSidesPhilly is an Information Security conference that’s different. We’re a volunteer organized event, hosted by and for the community, and we strive to keep information accessible.

The conference is designed to advance the body of Information Security knowledge, by providing an annual, open forum for discussion and debate for security engineers and their affiliates. We produce a conference that is a source of education, collaboration, and continued conversation for information technologists and those associated with this field. The technical and academic presentations at BSidesPhilly held in the spirit of peer review and advanced knowledge dissemination. It is this peer review that allows the field of Information Security to grow in breadth and depth, and continue in its pursuit of highly advanced scientifically based knowledge.
